I've been looking for some product that I could use to buff my hull up a bit and give it a bit of a shine. So the stuff you used CGM, was it worth it ? Could you reply with the product make. Might get myself some.
Hmmm, I've been doing some look'n...
Originally I wanted the Hobie stuff but my local dealer didn't have it in stock so I tried Polyglaze Dash & Trim Care which has UV protectant in it. When you do some looking around on the subject you find a lot of people recommending not to use product with silicone in them. I'm not sure of all the reasons for this other than making things difficult to repaint. Anyway this polyglaze stuff, although not saying on the label, apparently contains silicone I've just found out.
Anyway, it seems alot of forums are reccommending the use of some stuff called 303 Aerospace Protectant which does not contain silicone and is supposed to be chock full of good stuff for plastics etc.
Regarding the hobie stuff, I found this post on another forum by a user called "mmiller" who seems knowledgable on the Hobie cleaner...... Anyone we know?
The Hobie cleaner and protectant is two products by McNett.
The UV protectant is formulated to soak into plastics and vinyl to actually rejuvenate the materials. This is not like Armour all which is more of a coating that simply wipes or washes off.
The Mcnett site says:
UV Tech is a powerful protectant for use on hundreds of items including dry suit seals, kayaks, binocular housings, boat covers and a variety of outdoor fabrics and materials. Rejuvenates synthetic and natural materials and protects surfaces from sun damage and color fading. Restores gear to its original condition and prolongs gear life. Ideal for float tubes, waders & more.
McNett UV Tech™ Conditions, Seals and Protects Plastic, Vinyl, Rubber, PVC, Leather, Fiberglass, Hypalon® and More.
* Reduces Damage and Fading From The Sun.
* Replaces Lost Plasticizers.
* Protects For Easy Cleaning.
* Improves Appearance, Enhances Color.
* Nontoxic, Biodegradable, Nonflammable.
Anyway, next stuff I try might be the Hobie stuff or this 303 Aerospace Protectant.
Oh, and everybody says not to use Armorall.....
